Nelly
*adoption pending*

Nelly is an approximately 5 year old female shar pei/ boxer? mix.  She is small at just around 40 pounds.  She is very sweet - never aggressive.  She is great with other dogs and shy around people.  Because she is timid, she'd prefer a home without small kids (they move a little unpredictably for her - but she's never shown aggression, just hides)  She is not a barker and is great on a leash.  She is house trained, but really never picked up on a doggie door (we suspect she would if there were other dogs in the house).  She rides really well in the car, will sit to have nails clipped or ears cleaned.  They don't come much easier than Nelly.

Roxy

Roxy is an approximately 4 year old female shar pei.  She is very sweet and appears great with kids and dogs.  She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines, prior to adoption.

Willow

illow is a 2 year old female blue brushcoat shar pei.  She is on the smaller side and was recently rescued from a Las Vegas area shelter.   She is very sweet and friendly - great with adults and kids.  Willow can be good with other dogs, but only after a slow introduction.  Her first reaction with new dogs is to walk up and bite them, so she is not going to be a good choice to interact with lots of new dogs (dog park, coffee shop, walking in neighborhood with lots of dogs).   That being said, she is playing with our other shar pei at the kennel who she knows, so she could be placed into a home with other dogs as long as she gets to be alpha.   


Willow is very puppyish and high energy - she'd love a yard or someone that can exercise her.  Willow is spayed, up to date on vaccines and is microchipped.

Zin

Zin is another female that was one of four shar pei confiscated from a breeder.  She is only about 1 year old.  She has been spayed, is microchipped and up to date on vaccines.

email: adopt@peipeople.com
 
Chardonnay
Chardonnay is a 1-2 year old female fawn horsecoat shar pei.  She was one of 4 shar pei confiscated from a breeder in central California.  It was clear she had never been on a leash before - but she is improving every day.   She had a microeye (born with a very small eye with no vision) so she has had that eye removed and had entropion (eyelid) surgery on the other to make sure her lashes dont rub on her eyeballs/corneas.  Despite having one eye, she is normal in every other way.    She is good with the other dogs she came in with (Zin is her pal).

We'd love to find a home that is willing to work with her and be patient while she learns leash training, basic obedience and all the modern (scary) conveniences of modern life (stairs, mirrors, etc).

Chardonnay is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.

Mimi

Mimi is a 5 year old female chocolate shar pei.  She was left at a vet's office after being treated for wounds (looked like maybe harness cut into her sides) and now she's a Pei People girl!  Mimi is high energy when she wakes up and then settles down....she LOVES people and wants to be around them.  

She has been to doggy day care and been fine with a pack, but doesn't do as well 1 on 1 with other dogs - she is very dominant and will put another dog in their place.  She will be best as an only dog with a family who is home a lot of the time (she loves the attention).    She is crate trained (but not crazy about crate) and prefers a little canned food on top of her kibble at meals.  She is not a fan of baths, but will go into the water at dog beach (go figure!).  She has shown fear around some men (but doesn't get agressive, she retreats).  She is around 40 pounds.

Mimi is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.  She is a happy girl and would like a forever home!

Penny


Penny is a young female fawn shar pei.  She has some skin issues and was severely underweight when we got her out of shelter. She is up to 32 pounds (35 would be ideal).  She is such as sweet and goofy girl as reported by her foster family.  She has a very puppy-like personality - very playful and happy.  She is crate trained and housebroken.  We are continuing to put weight on her. We believe she needs entropion (eyelid) surgery.  Penny is on a special diet and has IBD and would do best in a home with a doggy door or easy access to yard.   She is great with other dogs.

Here is video of Penny (on couch) trying to get others to play!

Bevo

Bevo is a 6 year old cream horsecoat male shar pei.   He was surrendered by his owners who could no longer keep him due to a move.  When we got him he was severely underweight and had suffered since a young age from bowel issues and keeping weight on.  Our vet discovered a B12 vitamin deficiency which made it hard for his body to absorb food/nutrients.  We started supplementing his diet with B12 and put him on easily digestable Rx food and he's gained 9 pounds!  He's now 44 pounds and looking for a good home that will continue his careful diet. 

Bevo is good with other dogs, has lots of energy and is playful.  He needs some improvement on a leash (he pulls and zig zags with enthusiasm).  He is not a barker, is crate trained and is totally potty trained.   He loves food and learns quickly  He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.

Notes from his foster mom:
If you are looking for an easy to own, loving, 110% house trained, bundle of joy, Bevo is your guy.  Bevo has blended into my household with 3 other dogs without a hitch.  He loves walks and we are working on his heeling skills.  He is a quick learner.  Bevo gets along with my other Shar Pei and plays endlessly with my male, Bevo's favorite.  I can leave him in the house without a worry of him doing any harm.  He is just the sweetest boy.  Bevo would do great with another dog or by himself and a human companion.

Dolly

Dolly is a lilac female shar pei, age 8-9.  She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.  She was found with another dog (already adopted) and is good with other dogs. 

  It appears she’s had a rough life and has scars to prove it, but Dolly is a happy girl with a cute personality who likes the wading pool, walks and going for car rides.  She’s active and not a barker, but she does have some kidney issues and is on renal-friendly food and supplements.  Sweetheart Dolly has been waiting for a new home for quite some time and would love to have a loving home of her own!  If you are looking for love, Dolly’s cute face is irrestibile
! Location: Southern California.  If interested in giving Dolly a home, please email: adopt@peipeople.com.

 

Noelle
*special needs*


Noelle is a 4-5 year old isabella horsecoat female spayed shar pei.  She was found as a stray and is super sweet and nice - loves to give kisses.   She is microchipped, up to date on vaccines and ready for adoption.  She is good with people and most dogs. She doesn't seem to see well and we'd recommend a family without small children.  We'd love to find this girl a nice foster or permanent home!  She is 53 pounds.

Noelle has a condition where the lens of her eyes are not unstable and not held firmly in place.  She can see distance fine, but seems to have more difficulty with close vision.  She compensates fine through sound and smell.  However, she needs eye drops daily to keep inflammation down.  This condition does have the possibility of degrading with eventual loss of vision as she gets older.

email: adopt@peipeople.com
 

Sally


Sally is a bonemouth female shar pei/lab mix.   She is spayed and ready for a new home.  She was a shelter favorite and volunteers brought her to our attention because they thought she was so great!

Sally is about 9 years old and is 50 pounds. She is up to date on vaccines and is microshipped.

Sally is good with other dogs, but does like to play hard.  She would love a dog brother or sister that is active and happy or would be fine as an only dog with an active family.  Sally is super sweet and loves to give kisses and take walks (she is learning some leash manners with our dog walkers).

email: adopt@peipeople.com


Charlie
This handsome boy is Charlie and he is a 70 pound bundle of joy.  He is good with neutral, calm dogs, but would probably do best as an only dog at home (but good on walks, companion for coffee shops, etc).   He is approx 9 years young.  He is tentative around everything at first and clearly was used to having another dog "lead" and he followed.  On his own he can be fearful around new things, but does adjust and warm up to new people.   He walks well on a leash. 

He is very comfortable around a swimming pool and a couch (a favorite spot!).   He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and ready for adoption.
  

Mister


Mister is a fawn male horsecoat shar pei.  He is neutered and is 5-6 years old (best guess).   He is very sweet and was rescued from a central California shelter.   He is a bit alpha and would like a strong owner with rules.  He is great on leash - doesn't pull and is fine with other dogs (he's fostering with several other dogs).
